Another popular make within toy collecting is Meccano. Meccano enables the building of working models and mechanical devices, first created in the early 20th century by Frank Hornby, as in Hornby trains. In the early 1900’s saw the introduction of the first Meccano sets, these were construction kits containing perforated metal strips, plates and girders, with wheels, pulleys, gears, shaft collars and axles for mechanisms and motion, and nuts and bolts to connect the pieces. Meccano’s heyday came in the 1930’s where the original nine basic Meccano outfits (numbered 00 to 7) were replaced by eleven outfits, labelled 0, A to H, K and L, the old No. 7 Outfit becoming the L Outfit. The L outfit is regarded as the best of the Meccano outfits.
